Ok so... First off I would like to say the food here is really good! HOWEVER, the service is terrible! I've been in Jax for 3 and a half years and I've eaten here 3 times. Today was the 3rd time. The atmosphere is uninviting...and the staff just plain rude at times. If you go in there on a bad day anything you order might just be "we no have dat today" Today I tried to call to place an order so I can limit the amount of time spent inside, phone just rang off the hook. Then I tried calling back several times and guess what? They took the phone off the hook. Oh, and btw, the vm is full so don't even think about leaving a message 😂 So I drove over there anyways, placed my order, got my food and left. I've read several other negative reviews about this place so I wonder of management cares? I say bring in fresh people (keep the chef) to manage and run the spot. I'd only recommend it to friends with a large side of caution.More

The food is very good, I have been here several times over the last few years, and I haven't been disappointed with the food yet. Very good brown stew, and really good chicken curry. The only disappointing thing is that they don't serve Jamaican dumplings....The staff is always friendly, and helpful.More

After visiting Jamaica a few times and falling in love with the food, I have been in search for that flavor in my home town and I may have just found it. Famous Jamaican looks like nothing special from the outside as it is located...in a nondescript strip mall on the westside, but don't judge a book by its cover. The food here is legit and very, very good. The beef patties are as good as any I have had anywhere and the jerk chicken was fall of the bone good. The rice and peas taste like they were made in coconut milk or water and are exceptional. Their lunch special is a decent portion of jerk, rice and peas and a can of soda for $6.95. Can't beat it.More

This place has the right and famous Caribbean food. We visited there once while in Florida. The wait time was reasonable. We bought jerk chicken, curry chicken and ox-tail. The food was ready in no time and we really enjoy the Caribbean taste. Great place...to visit when you want a taste of Caribbean food. They also have a clean and nice eat-in place. They are located near a famous street 103rd Street in Jacksonville and have more free parking spaces. Small but good place to visit.More
